CBD for Dogs with Arthritis

Does your dog suffer from arthritis? Many pet owners use CBD oil to help relieve joint pain for dogs with arthritis. CBD oil has natural properties that aid in reducing pain and inflammation caused by arthritis.

Currently, the FDA hasn’t approved CBD oil for pets, and until they do, we don’t make any direct claims and recommend you read the current research for yourself. While more studies are needed on CBD oil benefits for pets, new research is starting to emerge, and the results are promising.

clinical study found that CBD oil significantly decreased pain and increased activity for dogs that suffer from osteoarthritis. The study concluded that 2 mg of CBD given twice daily could increase comfort and activity for dogs that suffer from osteoarthritis.

Another more recent study also found that CBD oil can decrease pain and increase mobility for dogs with osteoarthritis. The study also found there were no harmful side effects.

Benefits of CBD Oil for Dogs with Arthritis and Joint Pain

CBD Oil does not cure arthritis for dogs, but it can help in other ways:

Pain Management

According to another study, CBD oil can reduce joint pain for your dog by using a therapeutic target and mechanism. CBD also has fewer systemic adverse effects. By giving your dog the correct dose of CBD oil, you can increase their quality of life through pain management.


A common symptom of arthritis and hip dysplasia, inflammation can also be excruciating for your dog. Studies confirm that CBD oil has anti-inflammatory properties that can relieve pain for your dog.

An Alternative to Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)

NSAIDs are a common prescription drug for controlling pain and inflammation. Recent studies report adverse side effects from giving your dog NSAIDs. And the FDA warns pet owners to be cautious when giving their dogs NSAIDs for treating pain. CBD oil provides a side effect free alternative to NSAIDs.

Helps with Mobility

A direct benefit of reduced pain and inflammation is increased mobility. Your dog will have more energy and interest in participating in high-energy activities. This is especially true for senior dogs that are more prone to joint pain and inflammation.

Dogs with arthritis can be in a lot of pain, making them less active.

How Much CBD Oil for Dogs with Arthritis

Every CBD oil company will have its own guidelines for how much of their product you should give your pet because CBD oil quality and concentrations can differ between products. First, check your labels and then talk to your veterinarian to ensure the dosage amount is safe for your dog.

Factors that affect the dose of CBD Oil include:

  • The potency of the CBD Oil
  • Weight of your dog
  • The ailment that you’re treating
